I’m thrilled to announce that the second edition of Exploring Arduino, my popular book, is now available! Learn more at ExploringArduino.com.
Brraaaiiiiinnnnsssss!!! When the zombie apocalypse inevitably occurs, will you be ready? I recently served as the Technical Editor for Simon Monk’s latest book, “The Maker’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.” The book introduces novice makers to electronics and programming through the lens of a theoretical zombie apocalypse. Learn how to use Arduino and Raspberry Pi to build surveillance equipment, zombie distractions, booby traps, and more!
My (Open Source) LittleBits Hue Lighting Controller project leverages the LittleBits Arduino Bit, a small linux computer (like a BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi, or UDOO), and the Philips Hue Hub to easily control the state, brightness, and color of your Hue lightbulbs via a tactile interface.
At the 2013 Open Hardware Summit, all attendees were given a hackable, ePaper badge (lovingly called a “BADGEr”) that could be used to display our credentials during the conference, and could be used for experimentation afterwards. I paired mine with a Raspberry Pi to create an auto-updating ePaper weather station that hangs on my wall.
In a recent guest post on Amazon.com’s Tech.Book Blog, I explored a modern shift in technologies and education that has made engineering more accessible to the general public than ever before.
This tutorial was featured on the Cooking-Hacks website on 07/18/2012 This was easily the most time I’ve spent producing an Arduino Tutorial. I’ve been sporadically walking around NYC with this GPS for weeks as I’ve tweaked the code and gotten it just right. If it wasn’t obvious from the title,[…]
This is one that I’ve been excited about for a long time. When element14 asked me to put together a holiday special, I knew just what to do. This episode is the most technically complex so far; it covers non-inverting op-amp circuits, low-pass envelope detection filters, buffers, power management, and[…]
